No blers, no retrains, good SNR.  Carried a laptop to a different
number in a different exchange. Same LCP failure.

Good.  Thank you.

Still no satisfaction from Fibernetics.ca (the new NAS provider for
ca.inter.net dialup.)  The login banner shows "Username: Login:"
rather than one or the other. And why does it send that at all if it
expects immediate LCP and PAP after CONNECT?  Jeez, why does the
*user* have to figure this stuff out?
